The colonialist focused on transportation sector because of its importance in furthering European mining interests while as well in the aspect of agriculture, the transportation was largely to connect the agriculturally rich areas. They connected areas of high economic potentials. In a global capitalist market, an infrastructure investment brings about economic change which reduces trade costs and integrating markets.

Africa’s exports were comprised of raw materials such as oil, copper, cotton, coffee, and cocoa.
Gold was often a primary currency but over time it began to become expensive and laborious to continually mine. The introduction of silver as a major form of currency caused ripples of effects in many aspects of society and practically replaced gold in importance. Most notably effected were nations' economies (improvement of economies, loss of revenue) and societies (East actively seeking silver) but the effects on economy were often more influential because flourishing economies often brought new or expanded power for nations.

Some of the less skilled jobs in construction have been filled by immigrant workers and some of the higher skilled jobs by skilled foreigners, but overall it has created more jobs for local people, decreasing poverty and having a positive effect on the economy. It has also improved roads and public services for the local people.
Africa could mimic the style of others to figure out the steps and procedures to successfully establishing a manufacturing plant. Investors will continue to invest in Africa due to its large population and resources that it has to offer.

The larger the tourism industry relative to the local community, the greater its socio-cultural impact is likely to be. • The relative importance of the tourism industry. The consequences of tourism will be more keenly felt in destinations that are highly dependent on tourism, although established resorts may have a variety of controls in place to limit such consequences. • The pace of tourism development.

Of course, the impacts of tourism on the country as well as the people in that country can be positive or negative. Those impacts can either last a long time for example the environmental can be negatively affected, or it can also be a short-term affect for example the economy of that country can be improved by a lot, but it wouldn’t always be positive for a long time. Tourism can also cause problems, such as social dislocation, loss of cultural heritage, economic dependence and ecological degradation.

1.1 Introduction Tourism, as one of the fastest developing sector in Mauritius, has seen a robust growth throughout the last decades. It is a major pillar of the local economy of Mauritius.
